TAKE ACTION for education reform that actually helps students

This petition had 293 supporters

It’s time to support legislation that will actually improve education in Tennessee schools.

The Safe Schools bill (HB2641) will empower students to thrive academically by promoting an environment free of harassment. As amended, HB2641 will strengthen bullying prevention training and incident reporting and place the emphasis of schools back on educating students in a safe environment.

Another bill, HB229 (the “Don’t Say Gay” bill), provides no meaningful education reform, stigmatizes some students, and creates negative publicity for Tennessee.

Urge House lawmakers to vote on legislation they can be proud of. Petition the House Education Committee to vote for HB2641 and against HB229.
